Super Bowl party at the Playboy Mansion

Despite reports to the contrary, parties are still taking place at the Playboy Mansion. Sunday's "Game Day at the Playboy Mansion" gathering (which was not an official Playboy party, but an event booked by an outside promoter) went off with nary a hitch, with many in attendance wearing creative sports-themed outfits. For example, several young ladies couldn't be bothered with actual jerseys and instead spray-painted Pittsburgh Steelers or Arizona Cardinals colors onto their bodies. Officially a fundraiser for a police charity, former Playboy Playmate Brande Roderick held her second annual Super Bowl bash on the grounds of Hugh Hefner's fabled mansion, much to the delight of invited celebrities, comped "models" from cities such as Sacramento and paying patrons such as Florida resident Thomas Hahn, who paid $1,500 (the cheapest ticket available for the event) for the privilege of watching the big game with hundreds of scantily-clad women. "This is a once in a lifetime experience," he explained during just before the game began inside a tent specially set up near the storied Playboy Mansion's grotto. "The Mansion is like the 8th wonder of the world...I just had to see it." The intersection of sex, celebrity and sports proved a heady mix for many in attendance Sunday.
